BICYCLE ACCIDENTS

Unfortunately, Tennessee roadways can be dangerous places for cyclists due to careless and inattentive drivers. Bicycle accidents often occur at intersections or on streets without bicycle lanes when drivers refuse to share the road.

Cyclists on roadways in Tennessee have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of cars and trucks under Tennessee law. Bicycles are considered vehicles and share the rights to the road. However, drivers are not always on the lookout for bicycles.

Many cities in Tennessee are working to become bicycle-friendly. Some cities have passed ordinances related to bicycle safety and have websites to promote bicycle safety and to prevent bicycle accidents.

Despite the growing effort to increase bicycle awareness and safety, many careless drivers continue to cause accidents with cyclists who are doing nothing wrong. The results can be tragic. If you are planning to ride a bicycle on Tennessee streets, be sure to make bicycle safety a priority.

A victim of a car-bicycle collision has rights. If you or someone you love has been injured in a bicycle accident caused by someone else's carelessness, we encourage you to contact ustoday for a free consultation and case evaluation to discuss how we can help protect your rights and see that you are fairly compensated.
